BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The man charged in the Beauregard town shooting, Aramis Jackson, was in court Friday and his attorneys are looking to step down because of a conflict.

Capital Case Conflict Attorney David Price asked to withdraw from the case. He says his office has issues with another murder case.

Jackson is accused of shooting Alexandra Engler and her daughter Ariana during a home invasion in September 2010. Jackson has already been through several lawyers.

Despite all the legal issues, the victim's father believes justice will eventually be served.

"The man cannot get out on bond on a first degree murder charge.  Until he has his trial he's stuck there. So he is not on the streets, roaming the streets, possibly hurting someone else. It's not bothering me, there is a process. The process has to be done right. I think the slow course is probably the best course because you got less avenues for error, less avenue for appeal later on," said Johnny Adrianai, Ariana's father.

Aramis Jackson is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Alexandra Engler was shot to death inside her Beauregard Town home in September 2010.

Her daughter, Ariana, who was 9 years old at the time, was seriously wounded in the attack.

Investigators said Jackson's DNA was found on Engler's door.

The judge has ordered Jackson back in court on February 14, 2012 on the withdrawal for the attorneys.
